That untruth that you can spot reduce—flatten your tummy by doing hundreds of crunches or slim your thighs with lunges—is, we agree, incredibly unfair. The fact is that genetics (read: pot luck) determines where we store (and lose) those extra pounds. But it’s not all doom and gloom; while you definitely can’t target the places you want to make smaller, you can zero in on the areas you want to make bigger. Hear us out.
When it comes to your butt, if you add glute-building moves to your regular workout you can lift and sculpt a rounder, perkier bum. This will give the illusion that your waist and thighs are smaller (when in fact they’re probably the same size they always were). While we can definitely credit the Kardashians for our shift in focus towards the derriere and away from the washboard abs made famous by the likes of Britney Spears and co. in the noughties, it’s Instagram star and fitness model Brittany Perille who has been inspiring us to try out some new moves in the gym. Keep scrolling for five of her best booty-boosting moves you should try this weekend.
